Growing Lilacs from Clippings

A friend was trimming her lilacs and gave me the trimmings. She told me that I might be able to grow a plant from the clippings. The clippings are fairly large. Can I grow a plant? Is so, how? Thanks!

I've had real good luck in growing many variety of plant cuttings using a growth hormone. I place the plant in a plastic bag after watering and use a twist tie. I leave it this way for several weeks. Good luck, Bri
